Lahore:02 July:Languages play an important role when it comes to culture and tradition for each language is woven into its cultural setting.
A special sitting was held at the Punjab Institute of Language, Art and Culture on the promotion of Punjabi language. A resolution was passed on the occasion, saying that Punjabi should be taught as compulsory subject at primary level. One hopes that this resolution like many others passed in the past is not shelved.
Speakers on the occasion covered different aspects of Punjabi language and writers’ welfare. They said some aims and goals should be set for the promotion of Punjabi language.
A speaker suggested that government should create at least one seat of lecturer (Punjabi) in every college across the province. He said syllabus of Punjabi language should be revised to make it practicable for better employment opportunities, funds allocated by the government for Punjabi organisations should be increased and a committee of Punjabi writers/activists should be formed to set a line of action for the promotion and development of Punjabi language.Dawn.
